Foster Youth


    The GUSD office of Student Support Services coordinates programs for homeless and foster youth to break down barriers to school enrollment and create academic stability for our students. We ensure immediate enrollment in the Free & Reduced lunch program, assist families with before and after school programs, and facilitate communication and problem-solving between families and school site staff.


    GUSD collaborates with the Housing Department, Police Department, Glendale Youth Alliance, Pacific Clinics, Didi Hirsch, Ascencia, YMCA, Las Caritas, an Auxiliary of Assistance League of Glendale, Glendale Council PTA, Shoes That Fit, Assistance League of Glendale - Operation School Bell, and Los Angeles County Office of Education.
